    Good points that the law is biased towards tenants .

    But it still leaves us landlords in an impossible situation.

    Eg tenant texts to say moving out
    tenant empties property
    tenant refused to sign deed
    Landlord enters empty property
    landlord is sued...

  • Anyone see a problem with this
    by Movieman
    Hi everyone I had a real difficult tenant and they have left and owe me thousands. Which doubt I will see.

    they have left a TV worth about £15 and and normally I would never do this but seeing it as I'm not going to get any money out them

    They want to collect it , I'm thinking...

    by Sean2204
    Sorry you're right it's the section 8 whereby we would look to accelerate the tenant vacating the property.

    I have other HMO's in the city. As said above, this as c4 planning permission as the area is under article 4. It doesn't however require a HMO license.

    Regarding the...

  • Problematic tenant
    by Sean2204
    Hi guys, new to this forum so please be kind to me. It seems a great fountain of knowledge and I was hoping some of you may be able to advise on a current predicament I have with an existing tenant.

    The tenancy commenced on 8th January 2021 on a 6 month fixed AST.

    The tenant...

    The main obstacle is the high cost to a local authority of a prosecution.
    I don't think the pandemic will help that much.

    You go through life either following the rules or you don't.
    When you don't, you lose the high ground - behaving badly because your tenant has behaved badly...

  • Reply to Preaction protocol for rent arrears
    by jpkeates
    There's nothing about disrepair that allows a tenant to withhold rent.

    To succeed totally in a counter claim, they'd have to be able to claim a loss that was equivalent to the rent owed, which would be difficult unless the whole property was uninhabitable.
    They can probably argue...

  • Preaction protocol for rent arrears
    by GivemylovetoJudy
    I have read that I am obliged by the Court to follow the preaction protocol before issuing proceedings. The document seems a load of old tosh.

    I need to bring a MCOL against a tenant who ran off leaving £16,000 rent arrears.

    The tenant sent me an email saying that if I sued...

    by jpkeates
    Yes, it's an HMO, but an AST is fine.
    It may not need to be licensed, but the regulations are broadly the same anyway.

  • Is it an HMO
    by Enyala
    House has been let to 4 tenants on an AST. They are a couple, plus two single friends. Does this mean it should be an HMO and should not have been let on a AST basis? Your feedback would be much appreciated. TIA.

    I don't give references and always explain why.
    I've always wondered if my agents do and don't tell me about it!...
